UrbaCity Brings Amazing Adventure to Victoria

UrbaCity Brings Amazing Adventure to Victoria

On Sunday, September 23, 240 UrbaCity Challenge racers took on an epic quest in downtown Victoria, experiencing unique Challenge Stations that tested brain and body, all to benefit Island Prostate Centre.

Thanks to the generosity and dedication of racers, donors and sponsors (including a standing donation of $15,000 from MAXIMUS Canada) UrbaCity surpassed all previous fundraising records with a 2018 total of $70,095.77!

On race day, teams in the Fun, Fierce, and Corporate Face-Off categories saw a whole new side of the city – and their teammates. From the beautiful venue at Victoria Conference Centre, racers struck out to choose their own route among two dozen scattered Challenge Stations. 

Some of the Challenge Stations included: spotting rare finds in the Kilshaw’s auction house, artistically ‘tagging’ a public wall, learning and performing a Bollywood dance routine, taking on group improv games with Paper Street theatre – and a lot more. Thanks to professional course designers Pinnacle Pursuits, each Challenge Station was a totally new experience.

On the winner’s podium, a longtime racer introduced a new generation to UrbaCity and came out on top in the Fun category with team The Legend & the Legacy. In the Fierce category, team Wacky waving inflatable arm flailing two people came in first – and shook the roof with loudest high five in UrbaCity history. IBM Twisted Blisters lived up to their gruesome namesake to win first place in the Corporate Face-Off category.

Separate from the medal winners, teams were also awarded for exceptional fundraising for Island Prostate Centre. Tenacious Two brought in an exceptional $2555, and IBM Twisted Blisters were recognized once again for generating $2410.

All charity dollars raised go to the Island Prostate Centre, which cares for local men and their families here on Vancouver Island. As a non-profit exclusively funded by donations, Island Prostate Centre relies on UrbaCity and other community fundraisers to continue their vital work providing early detection, counselling, and care.

To help Island Prostate Centre, to promote Victoria’s downtown core, and to put racers to the test, UrbaCity will be back in 2019!
